Good morning!! Thank you all for joining me on my blog page. This short blog is something I rarely write about or speak about in class.
As I wake on this fall Saturday morning, I find myself in fetal position as I do everyday. I fall asleep in fetal and wake up the same way.
I say a few prayers every night before bed. One is always the same since childhood. The others are random.
Most of us may have past conditioning and beliefs about prayer. I know I did. Some outdated, old beliefs of mine were that we had to go to church to pray. Now as adults, we make our own decisions and realize at whatever age that is not the case.
My heart knows that prayer exists and I can pray anywhere and anyway I want to whoever I choose. The first thing I needed to do was clear out toxic beliefs about prayer. I remember my grandmother always praying with rosary beads by her bed, in the living room and if I remember correctly, in her house coat and of course at mass.
I have not been to church in a long time. I have considered going back, I need to find the right place with a minister or priest that is open and current to this world we live in today.
Another belief was that prayers should be said at night, on my knees by my bed.
On this Saturday morning, if you wake up in fetal position with your prayer hands on your cheek you can say this short prayer to start your day:
“Allowing my life to be held by a Love that is greater than my own thinking, I am open to this love now”.
Having awareness that LOVE is holding you provides us with a deep sense of peace and connection to the world around us.
We are on a mission to heal whatever “stuff” we have going on from the past or present day. All of this, in my opinion is not possible without some kind of prayer.
When Kelsey was struck by a car on Labor Day, the prayers never stopped. I found myself repeatedly thanking whoever was watching over her. I said “Thank You” seven times. And it continues. Every night from then on.
There are so many things I am thankful for. The list is long, but seven just sticks with me.
No matter what religion, who you pray to or how you do it. Just do it!!
Thank you all for reading and have a great weekend!!
